Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The research, the materials of which are published in the journal of scientific papers, must be done in compliance with the current legislation and ethical standards. The main duty of the author is to provide an accurate account of the work performed, as well as an objective discussion of its significance.
- Authors shall present their results clearly and unambiguously, so that their findings can be confirmed by other scientists, without fakes in receiving data and their manipulation.
- An author shall cite the publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work, and those that can quickly introduce the reader to the earlier papers, important for understanding the research. It is necessary to minimize citing works which are not directly related to this research subject, except for surveys. An author is obliged to conduct a source search to find and cite the original publications that describe the research that is closely related to this material. It is also necessary to specify the appropriate source of critical materials used in this work, if they have not been received by the author by himself/herself.
- An experimental or theoretical research may sometimes serve as a basis for scientifically correct and objective criticism of the other researcher. The published articles may include such criticism in certain cases. Personal criticism cannot be considered as appropriate under any circumstances.
- The individuals, who have made a significant contribution to the submitted work and who share responsibility for the results may be listed as co-authors. The author, who submits the manuscript for publication, is responsible for ensuring that the list of co-authors includes all and only those individuals who meet the criteria for authorship. In the article, written by several authors, the one who has submitted to the editorial office his contact information, and documents, and is in correspondence with editors, takes the responsibility for other authors’ consent for its publication in the journal of scientific papers.
